    I went with Sunset orange.. mainly because You said you were leaning towards it and I think that is the nicest color out of all the others up there..

    I love just a black finish with a mint green pick gaurd.

    However the new fender chrome red looks like another finish I wouldn't mind having.

    I voted for 3T burst. It looks great and Fender uses alder for the 3T and I prefer the tone of P basses with rosewood fingerboards and alder bodies.

    I voted for Chrome Red. A guitarist buddy of mine just picked up a Double Fat Strat with this finish. When he opened the case, my jaw hit the floor.

    natural seems like a middle of the road clolour, but out of your pix, sunburst would interest me the most

    Sunburst is always a winner. But I voted for the blue. I had a sonic blue strat way back when and my guitar player always wanted to borrow it for publicity photos because it came out so good.
